Question (seeking clarification). Don't the increases only apply to households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single)?

Good point. Who cares about tax increases on those making over $200,000, so long as it doesn't affect me? "Don't tax me, don't tax thee, tax that fellow behind the tree!"

Taxing thy neighbor will be the ruination of this once great nation. It's happened to Europe, and it's coming to a country near you.


Seeking clarification seemed in order because the OP seemed to provide incomplete or misleading information (based on my understanding of PPACA). And making financial or investment decisions based on incomplete or misleading information usually leads to unintended consequences.
